  • This is a nice little shop with amazing local artwork. This is a great place to buy something truly unique from Cost Rica. The staff are pleasant and very knowledgable.  more »
  • Very beautiful objects but some at very high prices (braided baskets), which limits the possibility of encouraging the native Communards. I still bought some affordable items because everything is quality in this gallery! I highly recommend even if only for the pleasure of the eyes!

  • Excuse me people - the gallery is quite open everyday. Please correct the "Closed" tag on this location
  • Awesome place! Connell is incredibly knowledgeable about indigenous culture. He is very careful when working with indigenous groups using fair trade and sustainability practices. Good prices and a large percentage of his sales goes back to the artist.
